heavens, another supertall, congrats - early days there team, but if this gets going, Chicago must be pushing the skyscraper race to completely new heights in terms of quality and density. Will keep an eagle eye out on this one.

Another biggie from Chicago, at this rate the city's skyline will be just like that in the I-Robot film I like the exterior very much, this looks at least to be within the 400-500 region if taken into account 100 floors.

Lol @ everyone saying we are copying others when we can just turn around and say they copy us for building any skyscraper at all.

Here's the location, BTW:

It's only the southern part of the parcel, though. Green boxes represent Trump and Spire.

Love it, but between this, the Wolf Point thing, Trump and the Spire, I think the Loop needs a little love- or at least the south side of the river. If these were all built the supertall ratio would be 4 to 3 for north side of it.

At this rate, this picture and date doesn't seem too unrealistic.

Wow, that would place really very close to the Trump and Spire.

I can't wait to hear more about this project and see some more renders. But I guess it'll be a while before that happens, this thing hasn't been approved yet. I hope it doesn't damage potential sales for the spire, but that said the Spire is under construction, and this'll be (if it's lucky) getting started in two years, so it's not as if they're going to directly compete. Absolutely extraordinary though, what would it make? - 7 supertalls in one city - that's amazing.

Anyone knows when they plan to build it?
That is exactly what I do! My classes ended early yesturday, so I went downtown and stared at all the construction sites for about 4 hours!

That is crazy! Last night I went to the AMC theater right across the street "East Illinois". If I had only known then!
